Is the quality factor determined from the components characteristics of the LC branch from the de-tuned capacitor system or its a value imposed imposed while doing the conception?

Hello Kenny

The Q factor of a power factor correction branch comprising a capacitor and detuning reactor is a function of the effective series resistance and is really a measure of the losses in the inductor and capacitor.
